    That's got better sensitivity than most hi frequency drivers. 11000 watts at 110db (I presume 1w/1m?)

    What do you drive it with?

        That's what I was thinking.

        I personally haven't seen a power amp that can do over 3000 watts... I'm sure they exist....

          allexcosta himself posted some links to some hellacious power amps from Brazil that pump out that kind of power.

            The thing about Danley and his stuff - he tends to rate his stuff conservatively. When Tom Danley says his stuff can put out 147dB, then it can put out 147dB. His specs are devoid of BS.

                I've been familiar with Studio R amps for 20+ years and can vote for their sheer power and great reliability in extreme conditions, but for some reason they never had the desire to go international. I've also heard of some European brands (don't recall the names now) that have some options around the 10KW mark.

                The Danley sub handling is actually 5.600W continuous... Still very impressive...

                  Tom is one of the premier sub designers in the world. Consider his specs as guaranteed minimum specs. Even his LAB sub design (which is free) is a monster of a sub. It just destroys most other subs attainable by mere mortals.

                    Anyone else notice that it weighs more than an old B3 Hammond? 1/4 of a ton. I don't want to move it.

                        Exactly, their DigamK20 will do 9000W per channel @ 2ohm and 18000W mono @ 4ohm...

                            All of Danley's stuff is impressive, but Danly has created a far more impressive subwoofer design, called the "Matterhorn". It is not available for purchase as far as I know. It was more of a "Can we do this?" kind of challenge:

                              Down to 12hz and SPL of 105db @ 270 yards? Nah, that's common specs.
